Where Evil is

Carol Beach York, Author Pocket Books $2.5 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-64372-0
Marjorie is invited to spend part of the summer in the care of her much-admired older cousin, Charlene, who is married to David. Marjorie finds herself drawn into an elaborate plot: Charlene pretends that David is trying to kill her and sets up a scene in which she ""accidently'' kills him first. She had to murder David before he could divorce her and leave her without his riches. The book is a self-indulgent experiment on the part of York, who has built a reputation for writing genuinely frightening mysteries. Marjorie narrates, and because there isn't much of a mystery, her time is spent describing the weather and locales of the story. Intriguing overtones, but this is short-story material, not a full-fledged novel. Ages 12-up. (September)
